    Does anyone know how to make video calls with X10? Does it require data service?

    Will I be able to use it is if I am connected to wifi but no data service?

    There is Live messenger on my x10 is that what I use to make video calls?

    You are aware there is no front facing camera on the phone aren't you?

    It could work if you use a mirror but that seems kind of pointless.
    The iPhone4 it needs Wifi and I'd expect the X10 to need the same, assuming there's a compatible app for this.

    The Xperia X10 does not have a camera facing in the correct direction for video-calling so I'm not sure why you'd want to bother. Due to the fact that it does not have the applicable hardware, I would assume software support for video-calling would be limited :p

    I'm sure there might be a way you could finagle a video call out of it but at that point you may as well just get a webcam and use your computer for video calling.

    I though it had one..... darn it

    So the thing near the indication light is not a cam?

    No that's the proximity sensor I think you are looking at.

    I hate the video call thing, it's truly horrendous seeing yourself talking... don't like sykpe or msn video calling for those reasons. No, I want good makeup, decent lighting, good camera angles and a soft focus lense before people are allowed to see my image!

    Great... Now you have me wondering if you could splice the proper USB connector on to a web to connect to the phone.... Something like this: http://www.buy.com/prod/new-usb-2-0...op/q/sellerid/23962916/loc/101/213271960.html

    Just need the software to work it.

    Too bad I'm not techie enough to try it.

    Gotta be ingenious but u can do this while positioning the cell phone normally but lower than your face in front of a big mirror, and making sure that you are holding steady...
